Adult Behavioral Health Programs

Life with an emotional, mental or behavioral disorder can feel like a roller coaster. You may have good days and bad days, and it can feel like a real challenge sometimes to control your thoughts or emotions. Our adult behavioral health programs are designed to help you cope with various forms of mental health challenges.

Adult Inpatient Program

The Stormont Vail Behavioral Health Adult Inpatient Program focuses on acute, short-term crisis stabilization for voluntary individuals experiencing a psychiatric emergency. The program includes individualized treatment planning with a multi-disciplinary approach, discharge planning and continuity of care with community providers.

Treatment Structure

Patients will receive individual, group and family interventions as outlined by their individualized treatment plan. During treatment, patients are provided with a thorough psychiatric assessment, medication management, therapeutic interventions and discharge planning services to set them on a course of outpatient services.

Adult Intensive Outpatient Program

Stormont Vail Behavioral Health’s Intensive Outpatient Program is a highly focused, structured and proactive treatment program offering a level of care between inpatient hospitalization and outpatient clinic visits. It provides evidence-based treatment as a transitional level of care enabling patients to remain in the community while gaining intensive, focused therapy.

Our intensive adult outpatient program provides a stable therapeutic environment for assessment and treatment of major psychiatric illness while allowing patients the opportunity to transition back into their daily life.

Treatment Structure

Our Intensive Outpatient Program is a virtual based program that utilizes a group format taught by a licensed clinical therapist with knowledge and expertise in treatment. Video calls are scheduled Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m. to noon with the goal of helping group members learn and increase their effective coping skills to enhance their quality of life.

Therapies for Intensive Outpatient

The format of intensive outpatient groups allows for group members to gain an understanding of their cognitive and behavioral patterns and functioning. Groups provide skills that focus on:

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a noninvasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain to improve symptoms of depression. TMS is typically used when other depression treatments have not been effective.

How it Works

During a TMS session, an electromagnetic coil is secured against the scalp near the forehead. The electromagnet painlessly delivers a magnetic pulse which stimulates nerve cells in the region of the brain responsible for mood control and depression.

Common Side Effects

Side effects who TMS are generally mild to moderate and improve shortly after a session. These side effects may include:

  • Headache
  • Scalp discomfort at the site of stimulation
  • Tingling, spasms or twitching of facial muscles
  • Lightheadedness
